Read an article on CNN about this. Several days ago, a giant squid was spotted in a Japanese harbor. It was only a juvenile too, about 12 feet long, considering it's a species that's believed to grow up to fifty feet, perhaps even longer. Now why does the subject of giant squids fascinate me? For one thing, scientists know giant squids are real, unlike Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster (but then again, I do happen to be a Bigfoot fan). Also with much of the ocean still unexplored, the giant squid is something we still know little about. We do know that sperm whales are known to eat them. We do know they seem to live in deep waters. There have been stories of them coming to the surface and attacking boats. And of course, they sometimes wash ashore. Besides, who knows what else lurks in the ocean. Some think the meglodon, the 70 foot ancestor of the great white shark is still around. There's also stories of huge octopuses, the best known being in the Bahamas. And let's not forget about that sonar anomaly from the late 1990s known as The Bloop.

Im pretty sure the bloop was determined to be a large amount of ice fracturing off one of the caps and falling into the water

Another theory was that it could have been a large group of whales, maybe they wher in a rut.

They have an organ in their head containing spermaceti. Early whalers mistook it for semen.
